Which are you? Morning Person or Night Owl?
Morning Person

If you could be a superhero, what super power would you want to have?
Ability to control the elements

How and when did you get interested in photography?
High School back in 1985, Minolta 35mm was my first ever camera.

Do you have a photographic "specialty"?
Portraits, Weddings, Babies & Newborns

Have any notable accolades, awards, or achievements in the photography world?
I have won several awards with Vt Professional photographers for my submitted images. Recently passed the written exam of Professional Photographers certification through Professional Photographers of America.

What do you enjoy most about being a member of Vermont Professional Photographers?Camaraderie among my peers and the ability to network and refer from one to the other. I cherish the friendships that I have made since being a member, and I don't ever feel like I am alone in this photography venture.

What lens is on your camera the most?
Canon 24-70 is typically on there.

Do you have a favorite place you've photographed at?
I went to California a few years ago and we drove through the southern area by Temecula heading through some Indian reservations over mountains, it was late in the day and we stopped and took some beautiful scenic photos, again it's not something I typically do, but when I see something pretty, I do like to capture it.

Do you have a favorite photographer or mentor?
I loved having Will Cadena here, I wish I could spend more time with his quick, confident and energetic style, he is like a magnet, I love his style of photography with Weddings and couples in general.

What is your dream photo opportunity?
I would love to have the opportunity to photograph a wedding at a beautiful destination location, I have never done this, but the thought of being at a blue ocean, blue skies and white soft sands and capturing such a beautiful location would probably be my dream to do.

These are just some of my favorites that come to mind. It's always hard to think back to years past and try to remember which ones would be my favorites. They are just images that seem to bring a memory back for me in one way or another.

What are you currently working on with your photography?
Fulfilling the CPP certification, awaiting the results from my image submission. I am also currently working on learning more photoshop techniques and start working outside of the box with creativity.

Do you have a quotation, "catch-phrase" inspiration or mantra that you follow?
Keep doing what you're doing, you're gonna keep getting what your gettin'

How do you like to stretch your creativity and/or relax?
I work out just about every day which helps me relax, but I also enjoy going on hikes and visit beautiful places and photograph different areas, I'm not big on landscape photography, but sometimes it's fun to do it, just because it's different than what I usually do.
